A correspondent of the Boston Transcript refers to the marked prosperity prevailing throughout the west, and says: "It was only a few years ago In Nebraaka and Kansas that farmers were struggling with heavy mortgages, and even leaving by scores, unable to make agriculture pay. This summer and fall farmers are putting telaphones In their dwellings and using the electric light service, which' In many com munities Is available to them." A promi nent business man who recently made an extensive tour of the west says "it waa a revelation of prosperity from the Canada line to the gulf." These opinions are veri fied by all trained observers. . Gladatoae'e Errwv. Morley'a "Life of Gladstone." Gladstone said: "I havfe yet to record an undoubted error, the most . singular and palpable I may add. the least, excusable of them all, especially since It waa com mitted so late as the year 1841, when I had outlived half a century. In the autumn of that year, and In a speech delivered after a public dinner at Newcastle-oit-Tyne, I de clared In the heat of the American struggle that JeffersoiK Davis had made a nation; that Is to say, that the division of the American republic by the establishment of a southern or secession state was an ac complished fact. That my opinion was founded upon a false estimate of the facts was the very least part of my fault. ' I did not perceive the gross impropriety of such an -.-.tterance from a cabinet minister of a power allied in blood and language and bound to loyal neutrality: the case being further exaggerated by the fact that we were already, so to speak, under indict ment before the world for not (as was al leged) having strictly, enforced the laws of neutrality ln the matter of the cruisers.

Mach-pe-a-loo-ta (Red Cloud), the famous Ogaluila chief of I he Sioux, Is dying of old age at Pine Ridge Agency. S. D. The old J chieftain has long been feeble, and, having been unable tc irasp the Idea of thrift through " long ; years of contract with civilisation. Is qalie1 destitute. The North Yakima, Farm and Horns thus speaks of this laat great Chieftain of the Sioux: 1 -"The first time he ever spoke to a white man waa. In the spring of 1864. when he came to the.graat, treaty of Fort. Iramle. We see him now,;as we saw him then, standing above six, feet In his. moccasin, as straight a 'a door, post, his eagle aye. Roman nose ':an4 general facial, and cranial developtttefrt bearing all the mark's f the born ohfrftain. His manner wa lofty. He waa clad only in breech clout, moccasins and a' buffalo ' robe wrapped about his person. He knelt In front of Mr. Taylor, the president of the council, clasped his hands, raised' his' eyes' and In Sioux dialect offered up. to .the Deity a prayer Invoking the favor of the gods on the treaty and asking for everlasting peace. He waa the typical war Chief of all the 60.000 savages that had .been .laying waste the settlements that the whites attempted to form on the' great prairies between Omaha and the Rocky- Mountains. Ho led the massacres of Forts Fetterman and Phil Kearny, and drove from Montana and Wyoming the military garrisons of all the fotts between Fort Ellis and Fort Laramie; and reduced the barracks to ashes." There is something pathetic about .the end. of thla swarthy chief, though In the name of humanity and civilisation we may will be glad thai his lfe and Its bloody incidents ore not to be lived over again.

Springfield Republican. The Walt Street Journal publishes a ilst of 10J industrial combinations or trusts. giving the amount of their capital stock at par value; the highest and lowest prices at which the shares have sold and the ex tent of the valuation shrinkage In each case. It is a remarkable exhibit, as might be expected, and the totals are worth giving: , Capital stock, par value 13,03, 410.83? Value at highest quotations....:. 4.090.047. o Value at lowest UOtaUoua X3Ai,(7.i;i7 Loss from highest prices v 1.764,06i,TjJ This shrinkage of more than a billion and three-quarters of dollars bas taken place within three years, and for the most part within a year, and In several caaee It amounts to more than the par value of the entire capital stock. These 100 trust concerns are nearly all engaged in manufacturing, and they rep resent only a' very small part of the entire manufacturing Industry of the country. The federal census of 1(00 gave the actual capital engaged In manufacturing that year as amounting to H, 835,000.000; yet the. value at one time placed upon theae 100 concerns, representing probably lees than 10 per cent of the actual capital employed In manufac turing, amounted to over 10 per cent of the total investment In all manufacturing. Some Idea of the tremendous extent of the recent Inflation can be obtained from this fact, ""as well as from the extraordinary shrinkage which has taken place ln esti mated values. The Injury Inflicted upon the country by such ballooning Is Immeasurable. This la tcue even when the case is considered In Its most favorable aspects. Let it be assumed that the great collapse In quoted values has been accompanied by no reduction of dividends on the dlvidead -paying stocks. Still tbe holders of this great quantity of stock feel poorer by S1,75I,Q0.000 than they did when tha boom was at its height. As the market went up, evea though their In comes did not In any such degree, they felt themselves growing so much the richer. spent money, more freely, contracted obli gations with greater readiness and reck lessness and so rolled extravagantly along, giving an Impetus to the consumptive de mand upon production proportioned to the extent of the rise In stocks. And so. aa the market haa fallen, even though Incomes have not, the holders of theae stocks feel themselves to be about 12.000.000,000 poorer, and proceed accordingly te ecooomnte aad contract expenditures In proportionate measure; which process affects production aa adversely aa the other had favorably. And thus aa a next step profits and In comes are affected. , from such extremes of speculative In flation as we have recently paaeed through, a country' may well pray to be delivered.

The United States capltol Is just about twenty-one tons heavier today than It was when congress adjourned last spring. Paint weighing (hat much has been ptit on tha building since adjournment. The Job will be completed 'this week. When the rep resentatives and senators who have looked upon the dingy- old walls of the committee rooms and corridors for so many years enter the building they will hardly know the place. Not only haa the Inside of the building been benefited by the work of the brush wlelders. but the huge dome and the Goddess of Liberty have also, received a new dress. The Goddess was not painted, but was given several coats of varnish to prevent her flowing robes from corroding and turning green. The chief color used on the Interior was light yellow, tha same hue that all of the corrldore, hallways and committee rooms were painted many years ago. The paint used on the dome was all white, aa waa that In touching up the sills, frames and aashes of the windows and doors. "Uncle Joe" Cannon haa mors or less plainly Indicated to some of hla colleagues In the house that he Intends to Inaugurate gradually .a new regime of floor leaders. Nothing radical toward thla end will be done, but the older men ot the Reed and Henderson organisation, or what is left of them, will soon be .made to feel that they are not the moving figures In proceedings. Some three or four younger republicans have already been asked by the prospective speaker to attend the sessions this winter more closely, aa ns wanta them on hand to assist In carrying out his plans. Washington Is much Interested In the fact that Mr. Cannon will comence housekeep ing at the capital for the first time In his life. Heretofore "Uncle Joe" haa not been regarded aa a society man, although he has never evaded the duties of his petition aa tha leading republican member of con gress. Society Is secretly expecting great things of the new speaker. It Is already speculating about the character and num ber of receptions and entertainments which will be given In the Vermont avenue house. Miss Cannon Is one of the most popular young women In Washington and It Is con ceded that whatever her plans may be eho will betray ability of high order. The prospect of having a speaker who will enter tho social whirl with some out ward evidence of enthusiasm is especially pleasing to society because the late Speaker Reed and former Speaker Henderson were disposed to Ignore that feature of their obligations. "The work of cracking an old steel safe has become very simple." said an Inspector of the Poslofflce department to a Washing ton Star reporter. You see, he con tinued, "all the burglar has to do Is to pour nltro-g!ycerlne ln the cracks cf the safe, then throw some combustible ma terial over It, set It. afire and get. out of the way. In a short time the explosion occut-s snd the door drops out as readily aa if it were made of pasteboard. , "This - method - of 21 ng into a safe Is known to all cracksmen, and It seldom occurs -that we heaf of a oaae of burglar ising a postoRlce tn the small towns that haa not been accomplished In that manner. The old method of boring-Into a safe in order to Insert the explosive la no longer heard of. - I do not know how thla practice can be stopped unless greater care la taken in watching the postofflces or mod ern Safes sre provided. It is Impracticable to equip all tha postofflces with, modern safes, so that I .think the simple methods' of the burglars will, be used for a long time, to come." , '.

Thirty years ago Bug Light was on im portant beacon on the Island.

When the jetties were built and the chan nel changed considerably on account of shifting rands, the itght was discontinued and Oibbs waa appointed to look after the property, which constated of a cottage in addition to the lighthouse.

In connection with the Canadian system of telegraphs there Is communication with theae points from Washington. But General Greely Is not satisfied. By cable from Puget Sound It Is proposed to connect' the Unltud States with Dyea, Skagway, Juneau and Fltka. This connection will be completed in De cember. And that ia not . all.
